“Speak Your Truth - The Power of Your Voice” Workshop
In this inspirational workshop, students will learn about Chanelle’s journey as a vocalist and artist, and the importance of expressing yourself in the face of adversity. Students are taught that every individual’s voice is unique.
Students will learn about the seven energy centers of the body and what each one represents, and then focus on their vocal energy centre. They learn that their vocal energy center becomes damaged when they gossip or say mean things about one another, so a strong anti-bullying and anti-cyber bullying message is woven into this workshop. Conversely, the vocal energy center is strengthened when students speak their truth, express themselves, communicate clearly and speak kind words to one another.
Students will participate in different vocal exercises in a fun group setting and finish with group songs. They are left with vocal exercises and resources so that they may continue their vocal journey on their own time. Studies have shown that singing has profound benefits on mental health and wellness. It lowers cortisol, the stress hormone in the body, while increasing dopamine and endorphins, leaving the singer with an increased sense of calm and happiness. It also gives the singer an outlet to move through their emotions and express them in a healthy manner. Students also learn to sing in different languages which enhances cognitive function.

“Indigenous Art Therapy” Workshop
This workshop gives students an appreciation and skillset to observe and create fine art while also learning about different Indigenous cultures across Turtle Island. This helps to strengthen cultural identity and gives students more confidence in their roots, who they are, and where they come from.
Chanelle’s mother Leesa, who was Metis Cree, used to teach this very program and received a Starblanket and Eagle feathers for her work in the community. Before she passed, she handed down this workshop and teachings to Chanelle.
Students will learn about traditional forms of Indigenous art, compare and contrast them with contemporary innovative pieces of Indigenous art. We do not know where we are going unless we know where we came from. This exercise encourages youth to create their own art and forge their own path into a bright and innovative future.
They are given a relaxing, peaceful, non-competitive atmosphere in which they can therapeutically express themselves through a visual medium. Research has shown that art therapy can help alleviate depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, and various types of trauma. It helps students express complex emotions without using words, commencing in self discovery and the healing process.
